Claire: Maybe one more layer. And tight, really tight. Dad, can you call them again?

Jay: I just did. They're on their way. Game went into overtime.

Oh, red wine. Really? Now?
bar mitzvah [ˌbɑ:r'mitsvə]: 给(13岁犹太男孩)行坚信礼(或受诫礼),为(男孩)举行犹太成人仪式

Jay: You know, honey, I think you're getting a little too uptight about this.

Claire: Mm-hmm.

Luke: It's hard to breathe.

Claire: Oh, you're fine.

Jay: What'd you do to him? He's turning blue.

Claire: Yeah, but his clothes will stay white.

Gloria: We're home!

Claire: Oh, thank God!

Alex: Hello.

Gloria: Manny, let's go change. Mwah!

Phil: Hey. There's my beautiful wife. I know you're mad at me, and I know this foam finger can't make up for

Phil: Okay. Hey, thank you so much for those tickets.

Jay: Gloria tells me you had a real good time.

Phil: Not really. No, I didn't. God, I love your daughter. [clatter] Ohh! I should-I should come by and kiss that
 fix that step.

[door opens]

Mitchell: Oh, you're acting like I wanted to destroy the house.

Cameron: No. I just think it's odd that the majority of things you destroyed were sent to us by my Mom.

Mitchell: Oh, okay, okay, okay, so while I'm fighting off that filthy creature, I actually stop and say, "Oh, you

Cameron: "Kitschiest?" Oh, she's gonna love that. You know, if you would've just come with me to the
wedding, none of this would have happened.

Mitchell: Okay, so you are angry.

Cameron: Mitchell, I get it. You're terrified of small talk and birds. You're just lucky that pigeon didn't want

Claire: Dad, really? That is not a compliment. That's why I wanted you to try those on earlier. Turn around.

Haley: The picture can't happen today. My pimple's getting worse.

Claire: Oh, honey, I am so sorry. Can you stand?

Haley: Yeah.

Claire: Well, then, the picture's happening.

Haley: It's all anybody's gonna see!

touch it. It's wet. Hurry, hurry

in his/her/its, etc. (infinite) wisdom: used when you are saying that you do not understand why somebody has done

Phil: Put that down, sweetheart.

Claire: Okay, okay, we got it. Now we're gonna go out here. Oh, my God! Are you kidding me?

Jay: All right, how do you-how do you turn the sprinklers off?

Gloria: Ay! Of course! Because I'm Latina, I'm supposed to know everything about gardening and

Jay: You were here when they installed it!

Gloria: Ay, yeah. Ay, the box is across the yard.

Claire: You mean your now-soaking-wet yard? That's great. We are screwed.

Phil: No, we're not. We haven't unwrapped our secret weapon yet. Luke walks over there, Hurt Locker style,

I need you to unwrap your brother, all right? I need the Dunphys over on this side.
Dad, you're in the middle.
Mitchell, Cam,
Lily, on this end. [sighing] Okay.

Phil: Listen.

Claire: Uh-huh?

Phil: I know I screwed up, but if ever you're in my arms again–

Claire: Phil, not now.

Phil: Yes, now! I don't wanna look at this picture when I'm 80 years old and you're long dead and know
that you were angry at me when we took it!
long dead: 亡故已久的

Claire: Phil, we'll talk about what you did later.

Jay: Why did you kiss Cam?

Gloria: No, I kissed Phil. He told me I had to.

Phil: No. No.

Claire: Okay. Hang on a second. Was this before or after you ignored the phone call from your wife?

Phil: You saw that, too?

Claire: Mm.

Jay: Could we please just take the damn picture?

Photographer: Okay, everybody, one more time.

Cameron: Just so you know, I am angry with you.

Mitchell: I knew it!

Claire: Oh, damn it!

Mitchell: Okay, you know what? Maybe some of us don't want to take a picture today!

Mitchell: Oh, shut up, Cam!

Cameron: [imitates wings fluttering]

Claire: Okay, stop it! Stop it! Everyone! Listen, this took me forever to put together, so I don't really care
who kissed who and who's got a pimple on her head, and who is wearing an
outrageously inappropriate
dress! We are gonna get together and act like a normal family for
one-tenth of a freaking second, and
we're gonna do it right now. Come on, let's go.

Claire: No. No. Make me. Make me. Make me.

Jay: Ah, this is ridiculous! You're both uptight about everything! You didn't want to go to a wedding with him
because you didn't want to make small talk? That's how I met Gloria. Do you remember the first thing I said
to you?

Gloria: Yes. "I like chocolate, I like fruit, but not together."

Jay: You couldn't come up with that, Ivy League? And you… you would be a lot happier if you weren't so

Claire: Okay, Dad, that's great. And that's really easy for you to say, but do you think I like being like this?
No, I don't. So if you have some quick and easy
fix, why don't you just give it to me right now? Oh! Oh!
fix: a solution to a problem, especially an easy or temporary one (应急)解决办法

Cameron: Jay!

Claire: Oh, my God!

Phil: I… I got this, baby.

Claire: No! What are… What did you do? Now two people are dirty!

Mitchell: Well, three.

Cameron: Okay, you know what? That's for "kitschy."

Luke: Mud fight!

[girls screaming]

Claire: No. Don't do that! 

Phil: Oh! Oh!

Claire: Everybody get back in line. Come on, guys, stop.

Alex: Damn it! Damn it!

Claire: Guys!

Photographer: Excuse me! Are we still doing this?

Claire: No. No, we're not.

Gloria: [laughter]

Claire: Now we are.

Gloria: We're ready!

Phil: Whoo-hoo!

Haley: Aah! [giggles]
